Sabre CentralCommand with Agresso provides leading travel management companies with competitive advantage
Market drivers force TMCs to adopt back-office best practices or risk losing market share; Over 20% of Travel Weekly's 2009 PowerList are Agresso customers
“In today’s environment, TMCs need to use every possible advantage to compete,” writes PhoCusWright (www.phocuswright.com/index), Travel Industry Research Authority in a research paper on Back-office Best Practices (www.agressousa.com/betterway). “TMCs that do not change their infrastructure are likely to become casualties as market competition intensifies and economic conditions worsen.”
Since 2002, Sabre Travel Network(R) and Agresso have combined their travel and ERP expertise into a modern back-office solution that is differentiated by its post-implementation agility, or the ability for business users to make ongoing changes independently in response to business change pressures, without the need to involve costly IT staff or re-implement their back-office systems.
CentralCommand with Agresso v3.0 includes new features to further streamline users’ operations, ensure regulatory compliance and offer more security, improved credit card handling and agile invoicing capabilities.
Agresso has a solid leadership position in providing back-office solutions to the travel industry. When Travel Weekly, an influential trade publication for the travel industry, announced its 2009 PowerList, Agresso’s stature was affirmed by the fact that 23% of the companies listed are using CentralCommand. In an industry where reorganization, mergers and acquisitions are commonplace, those companies not using CentralCommand with Agresso stand to fall victim to the pains of change management, minimal process issues, incomplete information or poor access that may disrupt business and loses customers.
“The travel industry, with its unpredictable nature has proven fertile ground for Agresso’s ability to easily manage change,” says
PowerList companies that use CentralCommand with Agresso include HRG North America, Omega World Travel, Ovation Travel Group, Inc., Travizon and Adelman Travel Group.
In challenging economic times, the travel industry, like most other sectors, needs to find ways to control costs and make better business decisions. It’s clear that companies using Sabre CentralCommand with Agresso to manage their back-office systems have the necessary visibility into processes and costs to make decisions that put them ahead of their competitors.
